1st XI v Handsworth

The two Toms bring happiness at Handsworth

In a tense and nail biting finish Kenilworth put the weeks of previous disappointments aside as their last pair successfully held their nerve and hit the winning runs to record a fine win over Handsworth with one wicket and 7 balls remaining of the match. They had posted 163-8 thanks to a solid century from Crossgill who hit 8 boundaries and two 6’s in his knock whilst Folkes added 21 helping the side recover from 73-7 as all the others failed to reach double figures. Kenilworth’s Gregg Peebles took a superb 4-39, all his wickets coming in consecutive overs whilst Joe Boyle chipped in with 2-61 and young Tom Pope a fine 2-20. In reply, Kenilworth started solidly as Phil Edmonds and skipper Dave Edmunds both made 30 each. James Nason made 27 and Jorjeet Singh 27 as they shared in a gallant and crucial 41 run 7th wicket partnership but a late tumble of wickets put Kenilworth on edge when so close to the winning line at 160-8 then at 163-9 but Pope held firm with an unbeaten 11 whilst number 11 Tom Anscombe strode out to take the accolades as he hit the winning run to give Kenilworth a long awaited victory and end the day on 164-9.
